weigh-in #5

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Today is my 5th weigh-in and I've lost a total of 10 lbs so far. Diagnosed with diabetes the first of October pushed me to lose weight. I couldn't carry the mindset of "yeah, I'll lose weight eventually, or "I can cheat now and be good tomorrow". I've been very careful of what I should and shouldn't eat and it's paying off. I do wish, however, that it didn't take being diagnosed with diabetes to give me the push I needed. If I had taken care of my eating habits and exercise I may not have a health issue right now. Just sayin'...take care of yourselves Sparkers!!
Have a fantastic Wednesday!!


First Goal Met!!

Friday, November 01, 2013

I've decided to set 10 lb goals for myself instead of looking way down the road and risking the feeling of disappointment and discouragement. I have just completed goal #1. I began my first weigh-in at 218 lbs on Oct. 1. It is now Nov. 1 and I've just weighed in at 208...first goal met!!! Now begins goal 2...to go from 208 lbs to 198 lbs....ONEderland!!! Looking forward to that and planning to work hard to get there! emoticon

Happy with my visit to the doctor today :)

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Well today ended week four of tracking my blood sugars and weight. My doctor was impressed by both. My blood sugar readings were only off 3-4 times which is awesome! Although he still says I'm diabetic, he doesn't feel I need pills or needles and that I can likely control it with diet and exercise. I've lost 7 lbs in the past month which I think is fairly reasonable. I'm not so worried about it anymore. All in all, had a great appointment. :)


Too much!!!

Thursday, October 10, 2013

I've had health issues all of my life...epilepsy, broken back, hypothyroidism, infertility, weight gain from 115 lbs to 225 lbs at my heaviest in a very short amount of time and doctors seem to think it's because of my thyroid problem. Then with the weight gain, I have very high cholesterol which was being closely monitored through diet and exercise. Three weeks ago, I was told I have Diabetes II. Nooo, I thought, I don't have that...no way! I feel like everything seems to happen to me. I have six sisters who are all healthy. Why me? I'm not trying to start a pity party here but I'm finding this latest news a little hard to process. I have to lose weight fast, says the doctor...easier said than done! I hate this!!!
